Cake Mix Blueberry Muffins Recipe

This was one of the first recipes I ever made after I got married and was trying to show my husband that I could be domestic.  I totally had him fooled!  This recipe makes soft, moist muffins using a cake mix. They are quick and easy to throw together, but taste like you spent all day baking!

Serves: 16-18

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1-2 cups fresh blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix dry cake mix (don't follow directions on the box), baking powder, flour, milk, oil, and eggs together thoroughly.  Fold in the blueberries (reserving a few to sprinkle on top) very gently, only stirring a couple of times so that your batter doesn't turn blue/purple.  Pour into lined muffin cups, filling about 2/3 full, and bake for 15-20 minutes.  Makes 16-18 muffins.

  1. I tried this today with both yellow cake mix and white cake mix. In addition to the recipe, I added some lemon flavoring, lemon zest, and 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt. The muffins turned out great. I think the yogurt helped cut the sweetness of the cake mix and made for a more tender crumb. Both cake mixes tasted the same but I liked the lighter color of the white cake mix. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Awesome. I'm not much of a cook. I had a chocolate cake mix but I wanted muffins. I found this recipe with a google search. It turned out great! It was a little dry, but I may have cooked it too long and I also didn't add blueberries. Good stuff. Thanks for the recipe!
  3. These sound amazing. I’m concerned that the nutrition information is not correct. The carbs per serving for the cake mix is 35 carbs per serving for 10 servings. Making 18 servings would still be 19.4 carbs per serving. That is just the cake mix.
